San Francisco, California (April 19th, 2024)Forage, the San Francisco-based payments company, today announced a partnership with Uber Eats to enable payment processing of SNAP EBT, when the delivery platform launches the product in late 2024.

“At Uber, we believe healthy foods should be accessible to all,” said Karl Hebert, Vice President of Payments, Risk, and Identity at Uber. “We are excited to partner with Forage to provide our customers the same seamless payments experience they've become accustomed to on Uber when using their SNAP benefits.”

Earlier this year, Forage enabled the nation’s first online-only retailer to accept SNAP EBT. Forage also is the only dedicated EBT payments company offering best in-class software alongside a dedicated team of in-house experts to guide platforms and retailers through the USDA authorization process.

More than 17 million Americans live in food deserts with limited access to nearby grocery stores, but over 90% of those Americans living in food deserts have access to digital food delivery services such as Uber. In 2021 alone, Uber Eats enabled the delivery of 226 million orders to these communities across the country. 

“We’re incredibly excited to partner with Uber Eats to bring online purchasing and delivery to more SNAP recipients,” said Forage co-founder and CEO, Ofek Lavian. “We know that accepting SNAP benefits online is incredibly important for millions of Americans and are extremely proud that through our partnership, Uber will be able to unlock EBT acceptance for all retailers on their platform and help more Americans put food on their table.”
